Pebax® elastomers find their way into the French national exams!

Last week, for young French students (15 years old), it was exam week! The “brevet national des colleges” is a mandatory exam to pass to the next grade and took place Thursday and Friday of last week. This year, one of the science subjects was a bit surprising

The PEBA material was one of the main subjects of the science section of the exam.  A quick reference was made to the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™ with a focus on the composition of the players shoes made with Pebax® materials. They also highlighted the bio-based origins of the material siting castor oil. 

A pleasant surprise for Arkema and a great way to showcase and inform the new generation about our innovative chemistry!
